    Greetings to all,

    How do I tell what version of SBS 2003 I have?

    Normally, just by going to My Computer & clicking properties will tell you.
    If i do this, it shows Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Small Business
    Server & does not indicate Standard or Premium. Does this mean I have the
    Standard Edition?

    The reason for my confusion, is that I see some components such as SQL
    Server which belong to the premium edition, however I don't see ISA which
    also should be installed. It's my understand that upon installation of
    either version, it's all or nothing...

    Any help appreciated.

    Best Regards,
    Don

    Definately not all or nothing. You can choose to install SQL or ISA or
    Exchange during the setup process. If SQL is installed and ISA isn't, I'd
    check your CD's. Just putting in the original CD (1), the menu should tell
    you.

  3. If your Sharepoint has a search box you have SQL
    If you have an ISA management console in the start/all programs section
    you have ISA loaded.

  4. Hi Donald

    The first 4 CD's are identical on Std and Prem. The 5th CD in Premium is
    labeled Premium Technologies. To determine if you have ISA installed lookISA
    in All Programs. For SQL Susan's answer is correct if SQL has been installed
    to SP but easier is look in Programs for SQL Server Enterprise Manager.
    Standard and Premium are identical if CD5 has not been installed.
